Beartooth’s Ortiz’s Rules of Positivity
Since 2018, there has been an undeniable force of positivity following Dr. Jose Ortiz throughout the Clinic and Acute Care halls of Beartooth Billings Clinic. Originally hailing from Puerto Rico, Ortiz, MD, FAAFP, has been practicing family medicine since 1997 along which his professional path led him west from a New York residency to serving Colstrip Medical Center (yes, Colstrip, Montana!) for 20 years. He has practiced at Beartooth Billings Clinic for almost five.
While “Googling” any must-know points that Ortiz may have not been forthcoming with, there is a 5.0 review on ShareCare from a “Blessed” patient last November. “Dr. Ortiz is a great physician and person whom we dearly miss in Colstrip. So much so I continue to drive from Colstrip to see him.” The review is testimony to his core philosophy of “one patient at a time.” “I see a patient and take as much time as needed for their proper care,” Ortiz continued, “I cannot think about who I saw previously or will be seeing next, or if I’m running behind or ahead of schedule. I treat my next patient, and the next, the same way until my day is fulfilled.”
Dr. Ortiz’s positive energy is the outcome of finding good in every day and a continued passion for his life’s work. Ortiz is a perfect fit for the Red Lodge area with strong engagement with trauma/EMS, stroke education, preventive, and family medicine.
